Hi crafty crew! Let's SHAKE our way into April with the new Doodlebug Design product: Shaker fillers! These are so fun, you'll become addicted to collecting these! They come in all the fabulous colors you know and love from Doodlebug. And bonus, they come in storage tubes that will look amazing in your craft room! So let's get into my project! I've made some ephemera shaker greeting cards!

This idea will work with any of your ephemera pieces. Here I've used the Made With Love collection and selected the mixer, the grocery bag and the frosting bags! Firstly, using a blade, cut out a plain section on the ephemera piece. Choose a piece that has a promising area for an edge, this is so you can put a good width of foam tape on the sides to secure the shakers balls.

Once you cut the front section that will show the shaker balls, lay down some acetate and then the foam tape around the section where the filler will go. Encase cardstock over it to close in the shaker balls. Add to your card, then decorate!

With all the fun colors, you'll find so many ways to create with these. How about grabbing a couple colors and making a shaker mix, so darling! Another great idea is so use several as confetti! If you look carefully and zoom in on the Baked with Love card, you'll see I've glued several next to the sprinkles.

I've loved creating these! Doodlebug ephemera packs are so jam packed and generous, you are bound to have some left overs to create this project with!

If you made it all the way to the end of this post: here's a treat, a video showcase! ENJOY!

Thank you crafty crew for popping by today! I hope I gave you a crafty hit of inspiration! Don't forget to tag us in on your socials - we're looking forward to seeing your next Doodlebug Design project! Until next time; doodle dee!
